D.L. Hughley has been pretty low-key for the past couple of years, but he resurfaces on a recent episode of Where Are They Now on OWN.
The controversial comedian opened up about his infidelity and how wife LaDonna Hughley got them through it, the loss of longtime pal Bernie Mac, and he shed tears when he started speaking about Kyle, his 26-year-old son who was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome when he was a child. He told the network:
“Everything has to be the same. He goes to work at the same time, he eats the same thing. Three weeks ago, I was getting gas and he said ‘Daddy, I’ll do it,” D.L. recalled. “I’m a nervous wreck. He comes back in and he gives me the receipt and the keys,” D.L. states as he begins breaking down. “I could not stop crying because he did something he was afraid to do. I just didn’t believe he could do it and he did it. I just held him and said, ‘You’re going to be alright.'”
For many people, this seems like a simple trip to the gas station, but for those diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome–who have a hard time socializing and must stick to certain routines–this was a major leap for Kyle.
We’re touched to see the at-times crass comedian get emotional over his son.
